Glasgow - Commonwealth Games organizers approved late entries Monday, adding 48 competitors two days before competition begins in Glasgow.
While the original deadline for entries was June 11, the affected athletes were not entered due to administrative oversights by their national officials.
Commonwealth Games Federation President Prince Imran says, "The CGF Executive Board took the view that wherever possible athletes should not suffer because of the failings of their administrators."
The athletes from Kenya, Jamaica, Uganda, Trinidad and Tobago, Tanzania, Australia, Ghana and the Bahamas will now be able to compete at the Games starting Wednesday.
